10:00 pm
have enough notice and they are real legitimate concerns. if we at the board were to over turn the planning commission's conditional use permit, would at & t resort to those right-of-way on the street poles to achieve the coverage of the gap that you said exist? >> so, at & t does not even have an approved distributed antenna designed approved by the san francisco. this is a pretty clear case. i think we would pursue legal means to pursue this site. we've been waiting 2 years, our federal shot clock is 150 days. if we had noticed through oh omar,
10:01 pm
we worked closely with the planning department, if he gets wind to opposition right before we had our community meeting we held a separate meeting for 3-4 hours to address these concerns, we didn't have that in this case. this is the first time. i think we had 7 or maybe 9 people at the planning commission. it's been almost three 3 years in january. our shop clock is 150 days. we met our legal obligation and we ask that you move forward to support the planning commission's decision. >> thank you. >> colleagues, any more questions? is there any additional public comment? seeing none, public comment . if there is any member from
10:02 pm
the pub protected bike -- public wishing to speak. let's hear from our rebuttals. >> supervisors, thank you for listening to us. we could have potentially resolved this much easier had the problem been approved. i think there is a problem with trust. why do we, the community not trust at & t? how come, why can't they get our trust? not just us, not just our community, each of your communities as they apply, not just at & t but the other carriers they are going to the same same thing. he said she said type situation where it doesn't of to be like this.
10:03 pm
the wts siting guidelines, i think the spirit was excellent back in 1996, but somehow that wholen at the present time has the focus has been lost. there is no accountability to us, the citizens. you are our leaders and we look to you to help us. district 1, with supervisor mar is our leader and each of you have your own constituents. this is going to be a problem. we need to find solutions, residential areas are not where antennas should be. they should be as indicated in the guidelines on public areas, places where people are not living. and it's interesting that the international firefighters association had a resolution that
10:04 pm
prohibits antenna on their buildings. i wonder why? i think there is a problem. so we need to solve this and i really thank you for the opportunity to bring the sub. it is a bird in the saddle. i am for technology, but it has to be right. thank you. >>president david chiu: thank you, colleagues, any final questions for the parties involved today. >> yes, ma i i continue my pictures. i didn't finish. >> unfortunately man -- madam, public comment is closed. >> you will see the picture
10:05 pm
clearly. >> we hear what you are saying. we need to give the member of the public the same amount of time. thank you very much. colleagues any final comments before we close this hearing? >> supervisor mar? >>supervisor eric mar: i want to thank many of the neighborhoods. >>president david chiu: colleagues unless there is any objection, this hearing is now closed. supervisor mar? >>supervisor eric mar: i want to thank everyone for attending. i urge my colleagues to listen to the sentiments of my neighbors. i will be moving to not authorize this. the lack of communication with at & t is a critical part of it. the independent study done by the neighborhood should be looked
10:06 pm
at carefully as well. i appreciate the planning staff walking us through the issues, but in my opinion based on my knowledge of how close sensitive receptors like young from birth to five children are so close to the nine antennas plus the many different restaurants and other activities especially sushi bistro which is one of my daughter's favorite restaurants. it's my neighborhood that we are talking about and my neighbors are very fearful of approval of a project like this. so i ask you to stand with me and my neighbors in rejecting this conditional use authorization decision. so i will move that we disapprove the conditional use authorization. that's item 23 and that we table items 22 and 24. >>president david chiu: supervisor mar has made a motion to
10:07 pm
disapprove the cu, second by supervisor kim. any additional from colleagues. >> mr. president if it's the desire to disapprove the appeal, it would be important to approve item 24. >> let me ask the city attorney if we need to know more. >> deputy city attorney. a number of issues raised that supervisor mar is lack of notice which is a planning requirement. not a codified requirement for the bases of a conditional use. >> so it's not in necessary or compatible based on the evidence in the record and the testimony from the community. >> thank you, and my office
10:08 pm
will work with the clerk to prepare findings for the next meeting consistent with your comments. >> okay. >> so then mr. president, we would not approve item 24. >> item 24 would direct the clerk's office to prepare the findings based on the testimony and evidence provided today. so the board would approve 23 and 24 and then the clerk's office would prepare findings to present at the next board meeting. >> and we table item 22? >> that's correct. >> okay. again, we'll make the motion as has been proposed by supervisor mar and second by supervisor kim ascribed by our deputy city attorney. let's call the roll. >> city clerk: supervisor
10:09 pm
farrell, no, kim aye, tang, no, wiener, no, yee, aye, supervisor avalos? no. supervisor breed. no. supervisor campos, aye, supervisor chiu, aye. supervisor cohen. there are 5 ayes and 6 nos. >> the motion fails. >>president david chiu: i have been adviced by our clerk that a motion to approve the cu would be a motion here. do you want to add anything
10:10 pm
else to that. >> deputy city attorney john gibner, no, the motion to approve item 22, tabling 23 and 24. >>president david chiu: okay, is there anyone who wants to make that motion? supervisor farrell is making that motion. is there an is second to that motion? seconded by supervisor breed. with that let's take a roll call vote. >> city clerk: supervisor farrell, aye, kim, no, mar no, supervisor tang, aye, wiener aye, supervisor yee, no, supervisor avalos, aye, supervisor breed, aye, supervisor campos, no, chiu no, supervisor cohen,
10:11 pm
aye. there are 6 ayes and 5 nos. >> the issue of conditional use is approved. and with that, colleagues, madam clerk could you read the in memoriams. city clerk: today the memory in the following individual for the late mr. sandy segal. >> with that, madam clerk, is there anymore business in front of the board of supervisors? >> that concludes the business for today. >>president david chiu: ladies and gentlemen, we are adjourned. [ meeting is adjourned ] >> >> -
